Knowledge Management and Transfer Concepts

  1. 1. Knowledge, Knowledge Management, Knowledge Transfer Knowledge Capacity for effective actions or decision-making in the context of organizational activity. Knowledge Management (KM) Practices used in creating or finding, capturing, and distributing knowledge for reuse, awareness and learning across the organization. Knowledge Transfer An aspect of KM that already exists through OJT, training, and organizational assets--transferring knowledge to others.* The knowledge must both be learned and be useable in a relevant context; if both conditions do not exist, the knowledge has not been transferred. 2
  2. 2. Types of Knowledge: Tacit or Know-How Knowledge that people carry in their heads. It often resembles intuition. This knowledge is often difficult to share because the people who possess it do not often access it to communicate it. This knowledge often provides context for ideas, experiences, people, and places and is not easily captured.        Mentoring/Coaching Communities of Practice (CoP) Job Sharing OJT Storytelling After-Action Reviews (AAR) Simulator training 3
  3. 3. Types of Knowledge: Explicit or Know-What Often based on established work processes. Relatively easy to capture and store in databases and documents. It is shared with a high degree of accuracy. It may be either structured or unstructured: •Structured – Data elements that are organized in a particular way for future retrieval, e.g. documents, databases, and spreadsheets •Unstructured – Information not referenced for retrieval, e.g. emails, images, audio or video selections Documentation and Procedures Training SME On-line learning  Knowledge database  Best practice database  Conference calls Interviews and debriefing 4
  4. 4. Knowledge Transfer Process • Determine what knowledge must be transferred. • Be able to articulate why the knowledge must be transferred. • Determine to whom the knowledge is to be transferred. • Determine how the knowledge will be transferred. • Transfer the knowledge. • Test knowledge transfer by observing its recall and use. 5
